Latest comment: Well, not exactly. But the principles can be applies to everyday objects. A 50p piece does not get stuck in vending machines, why? The coin is not circular but is an equilaterally curved heptagon. The sides are not straight but are curved so that the centre of curvature is the opposite apex of the coin. In other words, the coin is of a shape which doesn't have a fixed radius about any point.
